Burner Recommendations

Hi All: I'm looking for a recommendation for a new external burner with dual layer capability to replace my recently dead LG GSA-2166D. Please don't point me to the cheapest available model on newegg or whatever; I'm not specifically looking for a bargain, although that would be nice; I'm looking, rather, for an actual recommendation from someone who has, and is really very happy with, their burner, and I'd rather pay a little more and have a quality product than pay bottom dollar and have something that dies, like my LG did, after about ten months. Thanks so much!

Pioneer 111 Dual Layer burner (will burn any disc that does not have an error)
$31.82 today, but never more than $40

Thanks Ohkeepa. I'll check it out. Is there a specific model you had in mind?
